(NaturalNews) During October, there will be runs, walks, and other fund raising schemes for "curing cancer." The most notorious fund raiser is the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They display the most pink within the pink ribbon culture. Their mission statement is a world without breast cancer. So why are they ignoring actual existing cancer cures?

Pink washing

Woe to any other non-profit fund raising group that uses their event or activity linked to the phrase "... for the cure." Komen threatens them with lawsuits. It's okay for Komen's "corporate partners," for example KFC's "Buckets for the Cure" not long ago. One wonders how Komen will protect the word "hope" that they're using these days.

Komen enlists businesses to display the pink ribbon or color a product pink "(item) for the cure" or "(item) of hope." This has come to be known as "pink washing". It involves businesses donating small portions of their sales revenue to Komen. Often the businesses sell products that suppress the immune system or contain carcinogenic ingredients.

Besides KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) there have been many other unhealthy contributors "for the cure." Some of them sell cosmetics that contain carcinogenic ingredients. Some others are industries that emit environmental and health hazards. Some of them sold yogurts that contained rBGH in their pasteurized milk.

Komen has its own mail order list of mostly useless items, but under Komen.com rather than Komen.org. Pink washed companies or corporate partners have an opportunity to sell more products to those who think consuming goods leads to cancer cures. A Seattle gun store once teamed up with Komen and sold pink barreled Walther P-22 "handguns of hope."

Following the money

According to Charity Navigator.org, former CEO of Komen for the Cure Hala G. Moddelmog was salaried at approximately $500,000 annually plus bonus. But Komen's founder, Susan G. Komen's surviving sister Nancy G. Brinker, has recently taken over the CEO position and no figures could be found for her.

CEOs of charities that spent more than $100 million, which includes Komen, averaged over $450,000 annually according to Charity Navigator.org. Several charitable organization jobs are advertised for $200,000 annually. Naturally there are additional perks for travel and lodging as well.

Komen's revenue for the fiscal year of 2009/10 was $400 million. Thirty-five million came from investments and $365 million was from the various fund raising efforts, including race or walk fees, donations, pink washing, sponsors, and Komen.com sales.

That fiscal year, Komen' s contributions were: $141 million for education, $47 million for health screening, and $75 million for research. Fundraising costs and affiliate expenses were approximately $60 million with general administrative costs at $37 million.

Education did not include dietary information such as abstaining from sugar (cancer's favorite food) and toxic foods. It didn't include avoiding junk foods and eating whole organic foods. Vitamin D3 was not even mentioned. But bickering over whether radiation should come before or after chemo was discussed.

Mammograms can cause cancer or misdiagnose, resulting in unnecessary treatment. Thermography is safe and effective. But Komen refuses to acknowledge this while pushing mammograms.

Research is for Big Pharma only. There's nothing for Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski in Houston or Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez in New York, both of whom are doing their best going through FDA hoops to gain acceptance for their safe, efficacious treatments. No real follow up with the Gerson Institute or Hoxsey's Bio-Medical Center, both forced into operating out of Mexico.

How come no research into mega-dose IV vitamin C for cancer? There are studies proving its efficacy. Hey Komen, how come you haven't consulted with TV star Suzanne Somers about her breast cancer cure from European mistletoe extract injections? She wrote a bestseller about it.

What would any of these cancer charity people do if the actual existing inexpensive cures were allowed? Maybe they don't want a cure. Maybe they want their high paying jobs and puffed up prestige. They are part of the multi-billion dollar cancer industry, which would collapse if cures are allowed.

Komen has been raising funds for thirty years. As long as there are suckers who worship the cut, burn, and poison cancer cult while continually biting the "hope" bait, they'll continue.
